Since 1993, Ancestral Spirits Gallery has offered an uncommon collection of fine native art and crafts from Indigenous Peoples of North America and beyond. Located in Port Townsend, WA, our native art gallery features a wide array of contemporary and antique native art including basketry, carvings, photography, textiles and jewelry. Can’t come to our gallery yourself? We ship both domestically and internationally.

Our collection includes masks and totem poles, paddles, bentwood boxes and bowls, alongside museum-quality 19th and 20th century baskets from the native tribes of the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, Canada and Siberia. We have an extensive selection of limited edition prints and original paintings from the Northwest Coast, Woodlands, Inuit and Siberian regions.

. . . an “exquisite art gallery.”

  — National Geographic Traveller

Many of the native artists we represent work in the tradition of their ancestors, revealing the old stories while bringing new life to cedar and cedarbark, fossilized ivory and whalebone. Others work in mediums like glass, bronze and paper, honoring their history with modern materials and methods.
